What inspired you to write your book?
I love romance, I love New York, I love music and I love coming of age stories. It seemed like the perfect scenario to combine all the things I love in books myself, for my first published novel.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Eventually, I lift my head back out of the puddle, ready to face my utter humiliation. Looking up, I take in the rest of the guy towering above me. All six foot, muscular, heavily tattooed inch of him. He holds out a strong arm, covered in a tattoo sleeve that looks like a sheet of music, encouraging me to take his hand, and I swear my heart almost stops at the thought of having to touch him again. I need to get a grip.
Shaking my head, stubbornly I refuse his help, and look back down at the ground feeling flushed with embarrassment. I jump up quickly and find myself looking straight at his tanned face, which holds a friendly expression. But then I meet those eyes. Those deep brown, soul consuming eyes that are looking down at me just like they used to. I’m positively screwed.
The motion of the fall unsettles Zoe, bringing her round from her semi drunken coma and she somehow manages to get to her feet while I’m preoccupied.
It’s at that point, the exact moment when for the first time in six years, I lay eyes on the guy who broke my heart, that Zoe hurls the content of her stomach all over my back.
Fuck. My. Life.
